Volvo CE's highway class P6820C ABG paver offers productivity and efficiency
Volvo CE unveiled its new paver at Bauma 2014 in Shanghai. The new mid-sized P6820C ABG has lower fuel consumption and produces less noise than the model it replaces and is designed to deliver smooth mats in demanding conditions such as steep hills.
Power is provided by Volvo’s D6E COM IIIA Tier 3 compliant engine providing power of 142kW. A smart power mode selectable by the operator lowers the engine RPM to match power and demand allowing fuel savings of up to 30%.
A basic paving width of 2.5m can be extended up to a maximum of 9m using Volvo’s Variomatic screed. These can be added in minutes using Volvo’s quick coupling system without the need for special tools. Paving can be done to a maximum mat thickness of 300mm and at a rate of up to 700tonnes/hour.
The Electronic Paver Management II system allows the operator to control all functions. The menus are available in multiple languages. Track movements are monitored to ensure paving is both accurate and efficient.
